War savings open to all

The Warfield CE School launched a war savings association.

6th February 1917

Today we are busy starting a Warfield war savings association. Letters are being sent to each house in the parish as follows.

We are forming a war savings association at the school and it is open to everybody.

The rules are as follows.

1. You can pay 6d or more each week.

2. When you have paid 15/6 you will receive a £1 certificate.

3. If you withdraw your money in one year you get 15/9 in two years 16/9 in three years 17/9 in four years 18/9 in five years 20/-

4. You can withdraw your money at any time. If unable to pay your 6d any week you can make it up another time.

5. The scholars will gladly bring your contributions and your card to me and I will act as secretary.

Lessons have been carefully given to all the scholars and we look forward to a successful association.

The vicar (the Rev. Thackeray) will be chairman. Miss Leach treasurer. Lady Finlay and Mr and Mrs Crailsham and Mrs Thackeray will be the committee.

Walter Brockbank – secretary.
